Melville Earns Fourth Offensive Player of the Week Honor This Season

ORLANDO, Fla. – After leading the Knights to another undefeated weekend with sweeps over both Tulsa and Wichita State, McKenna Melville was honored as the league's Offensive Player of the Week for the fourth time this season.

"Each week McKenna continues to not just put up season-changing numbers, but I'm more impressed with how the things she does behind the scenes on herself and with the team to make our trajectory grow in the right direction," head coach Todd Dagenais said.

The Offensive Player of the Week award marks Melville's 11th-career honor and her fourth this season.
As the Knights earned two big sweeps on Halloween weekend, Melville dominated as she posted 39 kills (6.50 per set) with only two errors and hit .536 in just six sets. She added 23 digs (3.83 per set) and two blocks. The outside hitter also posted 40 total points in six sets (6.67 per set).
In the sweep over Tulsa on Friday night, Melville recorded her 10th double-double of the season with 21 kills and 15 digs. She hit .452 and earned 21.5 points to secure the big win over the Golden Hurricane.
On Halloween against Wichita State, the Knights were scary good to sweep the Shockers which ended their eight-game win streak. Melville was automatic with 18 kills, zero errors, and hitting a career-best .667. She also grabbed eight digs and posted 18.5 points.

After this weekend, the Eagan, Minnesota native leads the conference with 495 points (second in nation), 437 kills (second in nation), 5.62 points per set (third in nation), 4.97 kills per set (sixth in nation), and 12.35 attacks per set (10th in nation).
Claudia Dillon was also named to the honor roll this week as she was a brick wall with nine blocks (1.50 per set) in only six sets. Dillon added 19 kills to hit .536, two aces, and 25.5 points over the weekend.

UCF heads north to Cincinnati on Friday, November 5, and then over to East Carolina on Sunday, November 7.
